Good signing for the Jackets. Huselius is a very good offensive talent and should excel away from the pressure cooker in Calgary. With his speed and good hands, he will fit in nicely on the wing and is more than a suitable replacement for the recently-departed Nikolai Zherdev. At $4.75 million per season, both sides have to be happy with the deal they have reached.

Ballhype: hype it up!

Good prediction...on par with Paul Maurice being fired from the Canes back in the day, but it doesn't quite top calling Van Morrison's "Moondance" being the next song at Goldie's wedding.
